We have gone to Marina Cafe for 25 years through many chef changes and always looked forward to the great views and food. It is a beautiful restaurant with lovely views of the harbour. This time was a little disappointing. We shared a romaine wedge salad with bacon and bleu cheese which our waitress Shannon graciously split for us. It... More

We both loved this restaurant. My steak was superb and my wife's Creole shrimp was just as good. We enjoyed the relaxed, but upscale ambiance. We returned for a second visit with 6 of our friends just two days later. They loved it too. We will definitely return when we visit Destin next year.

The manager Wally made... More

Second time we have been to the Sushi special from 5-7. The rolls are half priced as well as the appetizers and drinks. Best deal in Destin! Bartenders are always super friendly. Appetizer, 4 rolls, wine and a Martini for around $38. Can't go wrong. I think you have to dine in the bar area with a nice view of... More

When we first entered, we were told it would be 10 minutes before a table would be ready. We were directed to the bar to order a drink. We noticed several tables empty and while I was going to buy a drink, the bartenders were too busy (one was counting money the other helping waiters) I decided to go back... More

On our anniversary, while on vacation in Destin, we decided to go out to a local spot and have seafood. It was quiet when we arrived, and the service was impeccable. The tables were beautifully set. We overlooked the harbour and all of the yachts. The food and wine were superb. After supper we had a nicedrink in the bar.... More

I've had their pan-seared redfish several times and it's still the best ever. The views and service are very good too.

Took my wife to Marina Cafe for her birthday, while in Destin on vacation. It came highly recommended from friends of ours. I must remind you that this is a fine dining establishment, so the prices are quite high. However if you go between the hours of 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. they will give you two meals for one,... More
